Initiate is the second solo album by the Northern Irish singer Mervyn Spence, once again released under the pseudonum "O'Ryan", in 1995.
Initiate contains no original material, instead solely consisting of ten covers of various tracks from Tom Galley's Phenomena project (which Spence was involved with during its initial stages, and presently holds the rights to), and three re-recorded songs from Spence's debut album, Something Strong.
The recordings of "Still the Night", "Did It All for Love" and "No Retreat - No Surrender" found on Initiate would later be included on the Phenomena compilation boxset released in 2006, The Complete Works, though they are wrongly listed as new recordings.
